Enviroliance were initially approached by the RNLI to support the Charity in implementing a robust Legionella control programme across 50% of the Lifeboat Stations and support buildings within Southern Scotland.
Enviroliance created bespoke proposals showcasing how it would effectively mitigate Legionella risk on site. Impressed by our approach, the RNLI extended the brief for Enviroliance to cover 100% of RNLI sites across Scotland and surrounding islands.
The Enviroliance team initially carried out Legionella risk assessments across all sites, producing and providing bespoke Logbooks to be kept on site. Where Risk Assessments identified urgent plumbing remedial works, Enviroliance called upon it’s experienced mechanical engineers to carry these out, improving water systems on site and ultimately removing any favourable conditions that aid Legionella bacteria growth.
After the completion of these initial works, Enviroliance established a long-term partnership with RNLI by collaborating with the charity’s Infrastructure Engineers to devise a commercially efficient annual programme of works in line with its water quality responsibilities, as dictated under the L8 ACoP. This involves Enviroliance attending all sites annually to conduct a full water system health check.
“Having such a trusted partnership with the RNLI across Scotland is something our company is incredibly proud of because of the work that the Charity does to protect people within Scottish Waters. We also exist to ultimately protect people’s lives, but from water borne bacteria. So not only does our team get to visit the most picturesque locations whilst serving the RNLI Lifeboat stations, we know that the services we provide goes some way to ensuring the institution is managed effectively so it can focus on its core activities day in day out”
